SEP 3 Blogger Jeff Crouere says the news is not good for Bobby Jindal on the national front - and it ain't any better here at home. And, Crouere administers an insult like no other for a Republican, calling Jindal the GOP version of President Obama. Ouch!
SEP 3 Blogger Tom Aswell tells a sorted tale here about the state Auctioneer Licensing Board (yes, Virginia, it does it exist) in this post. There's some shenanigans involving a former employee who has been filming the board's meetings. Seems the board plans to shut off his camera if he leaves the room to tinkle. Really?
SEP 3 Jim Brown is blogging about insurance this week. He's explaining the results of a recent study into insurance rates around the country. Ours are the worst - which is not a surprise, given that our drivers are, too.
SEP 3 This column by Jim Beam is a reprint of one he wrote back in 2006, after he and his wife attended the first Saints game in the newly-reopened Superdome. It's a nice way to remember how far we've come - and to remember the Saints beating the crap out of those dirty birds.
SEP 3 Here's a post on the Tulsa World by a New Orleans native who says he argued against rebuilding the city after Katrina. Today, he says, he knows he was wrong about that, because what NOLA brings to Louisiana and the world can't be measured with a cost-benefit analysis.
SEP 3 People magazine tells us that an Air Force pararescue jumper will be reunited with the little girl he rescued following Katrina. The moment was captured in a beautiful photo showing the child's beaming face as she hugs the man's neck. The girl, now 13 and living in Mississippi, was found using social media.
SEP 2 Blogger Tom Aswell takes a look at the contributions so far in the race for Insurance Commissioner. Basically it is breaking down to a guy from north Louisiana who won't take money from insurance companies and the current commissioner, who will. And in a big way, too!
SEP 2 Blogger Rod Dreher writes here about Kim Davis, that county clerk over in Kentucky who thinks that hers are the only Constitutional rights that exist. The lady (who is reportedly on her fourth marriage) says she's so worried about what she thinks the Almighty thinks about gay folk that she can't do her job. Dreher has an alternative that makes sense - if you think that someone who can't do their job should continue to be on the public dole.
SEP 2 Blogger Mike Deshotels examines the local charter school which apparently has some problems with its operations. In particular, Deshotels says, this charter is not living up to its commitments regarding a balanced student body.
